Exercise Bands – Elastic Bands
If you’re like me and keep up with what’s happening on the exercise/fitness scene, you might have come across a Richard Simmons tape or a television show centered around elastic exercise bands. Elastic bands are basically a home gym that uses big rubber bands. Curious, I decided to look into them.
Features of Elastic Bands include:
Maximum System has 31 resistance levels and creates around 20 pounds or more of resistance (very strong individuals)
Basic System has 31 resistance levels and creates up to 20 pounds of resistance (if you’re just starting out)
Your choice of either DVD or Video on circuit training
Bodylastics employs a smooth foundation of resistance with their exercise bands. The bands are made from elastic tubing, which is light and bendable. The elastic exercise bands can be fastened and unfastened from the ankle straps and handles. The bands are equipped with a door attachment for the most successful exercise.
You get 31 resistance levels for building strength, stamina and power, as well as for toning and firming. Exercise your chest, stomach, shoulders, back, legs and arms with ease.
Bodylastics has 2 elastic band systems available:
- 1 yellow band (Resistance: light)
- 1 green band (Resistance: medium)
- 1 red band (Resistance: light heavy)
- 1 blue band (Resistance: heavy)
- 1 black band (Resistance: extra heavy)
- 2 foam covered handles
- 2 ankle straps
- 1 door anchor
- 1 user manual
- 1 bag
Both exercise band systems include everything, but the Max program has the extra black elastic band to go with it. Products range from $9.95 for individual products to $58 for the whole kit.
Whether you’re in great shape and used to working out, or a beginner in bad shape and not used to workouts, exercise bands look like they might be effective. Read through Bodylastics testimonial page to see the range of positive comments about the effectiveness of elastic bands.
Reasonably priced, small and light enough to carry; these exercise bands are less expensive to get than everything else on the market that will offers this type of full body exercise. The bands are stored in a small bag that you can pack in a suitcase if you’re traveling. The Bodylastic system is small enough to be stored anywhere.
These versatile elastic bands appear to be first rate; they are sturdy and they provide a great overall workout you can use to tone your body, build strength, endurance and shape up.
